Access Issue: Echo Canyon Seasonal Closure: Jan. 1 - second Saturday in April Details
The Echo Canyon climbing areas are located within the Henefer-Echo Wildlife Management Area. The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources closes all access to the WMA each year from January 1 to the second Saturday in April to protect wintering wildlife.
Typical Echo cobbles and edges lead to a steeper mid section where you will find the crux. As with all new routes at Echo, it will take a little time for this to clean up. All bolts are new 1/2" (most are stainless). A better sequence was found and cleaned up in the middle of the route which brought the grade down a bit. Named after the train conductors who like to blow their horns right while you are at the crux.
On the right side of the Dry Wall. The second route right of the little grove of trees and bushes.
